2008 Tauton's Tool Guide Best Overall Editors Choice and Readers Choice Winner
Bring the accuracy of a panel saw to any site with the TS 55 EQ saw and guide rail system. This combination provides straight, splinter-free cuts on both sides of the blade right out of the box. Unlike conventional pendulum-cover circular saws, Festool's design allows the saw blade to retract into the housing giving you the option to start and end the cut accurately anywhere on the material. All of this innovation means a quicker, safer and more cost-effective precision tool. The dust extraction port ensures less dust and a clear view of the work piece. Saw close to edges, cut apertures and false joints, and cut to length. For solid wood, fine veneered panels and sheet goods of all kinds, plastic, and aluminum.
Features:
  • FastFix saw blade changing system - the saw blade can be changed in just a few simple steps; this means you can change the blade more easily to suit the material you are working on
  • MMC electronics - maximum adaptation to the working material, controlled speed and temperature monitoring
  • Zero-play guidance - tool-less adjustment of the alignment cams on the guide rail for accurate, perfectly straight sawing
  • Scribe line equals cut - exact cuts, even at an angle; the TS 55 makes the actual cut right on the edge of the scribe line, even on bevel cuts
  • Splinter guard on both sides - splinter-free cuts on both sides of the cut line; the attachable splinter guard and the guide rail make it possible
  • Spring-loaded riving knife or splitter - it's always there when you need it, and moves out of the way when you don't; the spring-loaded riving knife or splitter retracts into the housing during plunge cuts
  • Triple motor bearing - the triple motor bearing improves the smoothness of cutting action and extends the service life
  • Rotating dust port - more freedom of movement; fewer dangerous obstacles; the suction hose never gets tangled or in the way and can always remain attached for maximum dust collection
  • New T-Loc Systainers use one knob to open, close and connect Systainers to one another
  • T-Loc Systainers can be opened while remaining connected to one another, offering a convenient way to access contents of a Systainer in the middle of a stack

          As a professional builder, I use the Festool track saw to break down plywood, cut into flooring, and make accurate taper cuts. Combined with a vacuum, the saw is used everyday.

            I have heard about these saws and they are as good as they say. It took me 15 mins to read the setup and make my first test cut. I was doing a project with oak plywood and it was splintering so bad I stopped and ordered the saw. No splintering at all. Absolutely the finest cut ever on a piece of sheet goods. I did not purchase the MF table but after using this saw I will purchase longer guides and the table.

                  This tool is amazing. I should have bought this years ago. I use it mainly to break down large sheets much more exact and easier to do than feed precisely through tab saw. Well built. Takes a little getting used to having saw on right side.

                    Warranty

                    Festool Warranty

                    Festool offers a 3-year warranty, one of the longest in the industry. This warranty is valid on the pre-condition that the tool is used and operated in compliance with the Festool operating instructions. Festool warrants that the specified tool will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a term of 3 years from the date of purchase.

                    Conditions of 1 + 2 warranty

                    You are entitled to a free extended warranty (1 year + 2 years = 3 years) for your Festool power tool. Festool is responsible for all shipping costs during the first year of the warranty. During the second and third year of the warranty the customer is responsible for shipping the tool to Festool. Festool will pay for return shipping to the customer using UPS Ground Service. All warranty service is valid 3 years from the date of original purchase on your receipt or invoice.

                    Festool makes no other warranty, express or implied, for Festool portable power tools. No agent, representative, distributor, dealer, or employee of Festool has the authority to increase or otherwise change the obligations or limitations of this warranty. The obligations of Festool in its sole discretion under this warranty shall be limited to the repair or replacement of any Festool portable power tool that is found to be defective as packaged with the User Manual.

                    Excluded from the coverage under this warranty are: normal wear and tear; damages caused by misuse, abuse, or neglect; damage caused by anything other than defects in material and workmanship. This warranty does not apply to accessory items such as circular saw blades, drill bits, router bits, jigsaw blades, sanding belts, and grinding wheels. Also excluded are "wearing parts," such as carbon brushes, lamellas of air tools, rubber collars and seals, sanding discs and pads, and batteries.

                    Festool portable power tools requiring replacement or repair are to be returned to Festool. Call (800) 554-8741 for address details. In no event shall Festool be liable for any consequential or incidental damages for breach of this or any other warranty, express or implied whatsoever. All warranties implied by state law, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are hereby limited to the duration of three years.

                    Some states in the U.S. do not allow the limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. With the exception of any warranties implied by state or province law as hereby limited, the foregoing express limited warranty is exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, guarantees, agreements, and similar obligations of Festool.

                    This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state in the U.S.
